Re: Language practice thread

C'est une deuxième langue populaire. It's a popular second language. Perso, j'utilise le français parce que c'est la seule langue autre que l'anglais que je parle. Personally, I use French because it's the only not-English language I speak. Moi aussi. Avant de faire du français je voulais faire un ...

Re: Ȧbhannı

I figured out, for the most part, the phonological development of Ábḫanni, which should span at least a thousand years. Unlike in some of my older posts I'm not really interested in the older forms of Ábḫanni but am simply developing the history in order to be able to have realistic and interesting ...

Re: Ȧbhannı

I'm sorry. I'm again fucking with terms. I think that what you call "perfective" is actually "perfect". In linguistics they are two different things, although in Romance languages they are expressed with the same form. Perfect can also be called "retrospectative" if you want to emphasize that it is...

Ábhanni

Well, it's been a while. I haven't done a whole lot of conlanging since I was last here but I have some motivation to get back into it. I have a lot of material on Ábhanni (plus a little bit of orthography change lol) but most of it is scattered across many different revisions that didn't get very f...

Blech, ok I'm starting over again. Well, I'm keeping most of what I did since the first restart but overhauling it quite a bit. Not so much a restart as simply reorienting myself. But first I'd like some advice from you guys on how most efficiently to make my grammar. The way I've been doing it sinc...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Quick question. Ȧbhannı marks neither person nor number on the verb and I want to keep it that way. These things seem to be, in my experience, almost ubiquitous for very synthesizing natlangs. I'm just curious, how synthesizing can natlangs get while lacking both of these markings?

Re: Ȧbhannı

Okay, this has taken a while, but I'm gonna talk about the last two cases (skipping the vocative for now I guess) which I call the "peripheral" cases (since they don't mark arguments, unlike the "core" cases, and are suffixed after those cases). Possessive The possessive case differs from the other ...
